Most work days, I leave my desk only to go to the printer, to meetings, or to the ladies room. The rest of the time I’m banging away at the keys, trying to get things done so I can go home at a reasonable time. No one makes me do this. But after several years of working really long hours and feeling the toll on my body, I’m really motivated to end my day at a reasonable time.
That said, I did something different today. It was sunny after days of rain, so about midmorning I left work to go pick up some medication, and then decided to spend a little time in the sun. It felt downright decadent to actually be out in the sunlight, taking a break and getting some shopping done.
In less than an hour, I was back in the office feeling more focused and energized, and powered through the rest of the afternoon so I could come home and start the weekend with the husband.
I think I want more days like this. Who knew the decadence of an hour of fresh air could make me feel so much better?
